The ending is open and ambiguous enough that it is not hard to imagine a sequel or two, continuing the twists and turns of this story.
It is easy to imagine "Wild Hearted" filmed in black and white, with long deep shadows and darkened streets....it's a very bracing change from the typical character romance. Author Lea Bronsen is very talented, and has a keen eye for detail. I look forward to reading more of her fiction.
Can't wait to see more from Lea Bronsen!
At the core is a beautiful love story between a rough and obnoxious gang leader, Tomor, and Luz, a self-conscious, naive girl from the other side of town. It was hard for me to understand their initial infatuation with each other, but it was there, and it began the torturous love story between the two.
I didn't really care for the character Luz and found myself wanting to scream, "What the hell are you doing?" at her. But I think the bottom line was that she had a good heart, and she did not hesitate to follow it.
Tomor, although despicable, was a great character. The author did a wonderful job with his characterization and growth throughout the novel. It was very clear what made him tick, how he came to be the way he was, and what he was all about. It was so easy to get inside his head and his world. So much so that I swear I even knew what he smelled like as I read.
I went into this read knowing that it was about a gang leader. I fully expected to be immersed into that world: drugs, hookers, sex, violence and criminal activity. But this book has so much more that I didn't anticipate. And that's where the disturbing part comes in. There were scenes that depicted everything from self-mutilation to child molestation, and brutal rape to perverse and sick ideas about getting off. I'm not saying these things made this a bad book, just that these things were very hard for me personally to read.
Now having said that, I at no point even considered putting this book away. I wanted to get through to the end. I wanted to find out what happened with Tomor and Luz. Not only that, but in my opinion the writing was excellent.
In conclusion, I liked it. It's definitely worth a read if you're okay with reading brutally blunt and highly adult themes.
About the characters, I love them all!! I love Luz, she's feisty even though she was with Tomor (on the first part where she's with him and his gang). And Tomor! He's so intimidating. As I was reading the book, it feels like he's right beside me. The author really brought the characters to life and you can definitely feel them as if they were real. The story, it's a good story and it will left you thinking how will the story ends.. Speaking of ending, I was kind of wanting to know more about it! Haha!! I know, I'm such a creep when it comes to the ending of the story, I was still craving for more about what will happen to them.
